Vasco Wear 38

Vasco38 is a premium quality natural rubber compound with outstanding technical characteristics such as resilience, strength and resistance to cutting, tearing and abrasion. This rubber compound has a great wear resistance especially where larger product parts like minerals and ores are processed, such as in mine backfill, pipe/chute/tank linings, screen underpants, hoppers and bins, pipe elbows, pumps and valve liners, vibrating feeders, sand and gravel operations.

Vasco38 can be tailor-made to clients’ requests. The standard sheet size is 9.25m x 1.23m nominal (approx. 30ft x 4ft), and the available thickness ranges from 3.0mm to 35mm (approx. 1/8” to 1 3/8”). It has an excellent resistance to cutting and tearing, a high resilience, and a strong resistance to a wide range of chemi-cals.
